    I was surfing the web, when suddenly pages would not load anymore. Wicd cannot spot any networks anymore, pressing the Refresh button does not do anything. I am on antiX 17.2

    The first thing that comes to mind is you pressed accidentally a hotkey for wlan.
    Does
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    help ?

    Hmm, I saw your thread on mx-forum about the start on bootscreen being stopped.Maybe your keyboard has a life of its own and presses one or more keys.

    Caprea, you really are a star!! And that is not meant like a sycophantic remark, it is meant. Whenever you reply your advice is always useful. So yes, this worked. There is no wlan hotkey, but I (actually my wife, it’s her laptop) must have pressed a key that did this.

    The bootscreen issue is not a major one, just an annoyance. If it is not solvable I/she will live with it.

    Regarding the keyboard, I started a thread about it being blocked after a de-suspension, you advised me to update the kernel to 4.19 or 4.20. The latest listed was 4.19.something, which I installed 2 days ago. It is a bit early yet to make a definitive statement, but so far so good. In any case I have not experienced any untoward effects yet. I will follow that issue up in the other thread.

    Anyway, thanks again for this simple, effective solution, you made my wife very happy. Thanks.
